Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic - your secret concealing and brightening kit!

People never realize just how important concealer is until you catch sight of yourself in the mirror one day when you were too lazy/tired to put it on that morning.  This was me the other day and I solemnly swear that I will never be that lazy again!  It's not that I don't own concealer, I have tons of it, probably too much which is why this kit is such a great idea - instead of having to dig through a whole bunch you have everything you need for concealing and brightening all together in one place!

Confessions of a Concealaholic - $44 - For starters, it comes in the cutest little diary inspired case with a mirror on the inside of the front cover.  Inside is a booklet telling you what all the products are and what you should do with them.  It also includes two double sided brushes and the brilliant part - the handles are marked with what product the brush is intended for - no more cross contamination of your products!

Here's what you get:

"that gal" - brightening face primer - a pink coloured primer to perk up a tired complexion, can be used alone or under/over makeup.  I really like this on my no-foundation days as it gives me a touch of extra colour.

erase paste - brightening camouflage - a dark circle super hider - the one in the kit is a bit too dark for me but I tried a lighter one at the store and it really does have impressive coverage!

boi-ing - industrial strength concealer - for hiding your scary imperfection - the kit contains two shades 01 & 02 - 01 was a perfect colour for me and did an impressive job of hiding a nasty red mark I had on my face.

lemon aid - colour correcting eyelid primer - a yellow toned primer which is totally awesome.  I had never tried it before and I was impressed at how just a little bit totally hid the redness on my eyelids and made me look awake!

eye bright - instant eye brightener - I have long used a powder as an eyebrightener but I far prefer this cream for the job.  It blends in much easier and is less noticeable.

This kit is a winner but I hope that in the future, Benefit might come out with a "light" version for the fair skinned crowd as there are a couple of products that I just wouldn't be able to use in this one.  You can go here to find the Benefit location closest to you.

  1. I loooove the idea of this kit, though I'm kinda grossed out by the open pans of concealer in the kit - especially when Erase Paste is in its own little jar! I can just imagine dust and all kinds of gross nasties getting in there >_>

  2. I know what you mean - there is a plastic sheet that sits on top to keep the dust out but it would be nice if there were lids of some sort for each pan!

    Best, Lisamarie
